In 2020, we'll release an issue (23.2) that addresses ideas of power: authority, empowerment, privilege, muscle, independence, strength, fortitude, unity, protest.
For our print issues, we read flash and essays up to 6,000 words (approx. 17 pages). Essays longer than 6,000 words should be submitted to our annual IHLR Long Story, not here. We generally do not read stories longer than 6,000 words except for our IHLR Long Story.
We accept simultaneous submissions, but please let us know if the essay is taken elsewhere the moment that happens.
